Beginning August 1, 2018 Festus R-VI will be launching Online Registration! Please make sure you have a valid email address on record to access this feature! Online Registration will limit paper forms that parents fill out at the beginning of each school year. Access to Online Registration can be reached using Parent Portal. Online Registration is a resource that can be used for all students, Kindergarten through 12th grade. Questions related to Parent Portal can be directed to Paula Cox at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please monitor the district’s website and social media over the summer as we will post more information along with instructions on how to use Online Registration.
Festus R-VI is implementing a new online process for 2018-2019 school year for those community members who wish to utilize renting a Festus R-VI Facility. The link to the new site will be on our district website, www.festus.k12.mo.us, July 1, you can create your group at that time but the buildings are unavailable until August 20th. Typically, the high school and middle school gyms won’t be available Monday-Friday during the school year due to school practices and games.
One of the key benefits of the new online process is you will now be able to see what dates/times are available without having to contact the office. We still require proof of insurance, you can either scan the certificate in or bring the paper copy by a building office and we will scan it in for you. You will also have to pay for the facility prior to using it. Once the request has been approved, payment is due immediately. We’ve added an online payment option for your convenience or you can always write a check and bring it by the Roy D. Burnside Administrative Building, 1515 Mid-Meadow Lane, Festus, MO 63028. We also still require the $100 refundable deposit. Our full Facility Rental Usage Procedure/Process handbook can be reached on the district website under Facility Rental Quick Link.
